Harajuku Wedding

Two weeks ago we set off for Togo Shrine (東郷神社) in Harajuku to check out the flea market. This Tokyo flea market was supposed to take place on the first and fourth Sundays of every month. As we approached we knew something was wrong as the place was nearly empty. A small sign (in Japanese) said the flea market had been discontinued as of the beginning of 2010.

As we were leaving, though, we spotted this wedding party.

Mom, or perhaps mother-in-law, had some last pieces of advice for the bride.

They made their way up the stairs and into Togo Jinja…

…where their wedding took place moments later.

    A very nice set of wedding photos! The wedding kimonos are spectacular! Once while in Osaka, I came upon a wedding party and timing was perfect! I stood next to the professional photographer and snapped a photo of the seated wedding party with the Osaka Castle behind them!

    I have seen some wedding parties as well. I caught some great photos of the bridal couple at the shrine in Myogima. Your shots are SO good!
